life. Can you give that to them? Then be not too eager to deal out death in the name of justice. For even the wise cannot see all ends." JRR Tolkein

Speaking of killing people to show people that killing people is wrong, what are the candidates' respective views on capital punishment? This, I believe, will be a window into their soul.

Congressman Dennis J. Kucinich (D-OH), today, introduced legislation to abolish the federal death penalty. The Federal Death Penalty Abolition Act of 2005, currently co-sponsored by 39 Members of Congress, will put an immediate halt to executions and forbid the imposition of the death penalty as a sentence for violations of federal law.

Also opposing: Gravel, Paul

Kind of scary.

5. Yikes! That's sobering. What is this planet, and what have they done with Earth?

3. Thanks! That's the kind of response I appreciate. It's an indictment against our society that
this is not a bigger issue.

6. "Compassionate America" is a dirty lie. This is a nation of torturing killers.
Sorry, I have a real aversion to the intentional taking of sentient life. There is SO much work to be accomplished....

7. Obama led on DP reform in Illinois
He hasn't opposed it outright, which I think is sad, but he does understand its flaws and racial biases, and has done more to pass real reform than just about anybody else in the country.
